and colorado. using the latest jobs report to make his argument that america needs a change. john roberts is live in inglewood where governor romney is expected to make his final campaign stop of the day. >> reporter: good afternoon to you. this is the time in the election campaign when those of us like to call it death march into tuesday. both campaigns pulling out all the stops doing whatever they can to try to woo over the late decided voters. governor romney on the stomp in iowa saying he has the experience to turn the economy around saying the president has failed to meet the challenge fay can the united states. >> the difference between us, he makes promises and he couldn't keep. i'm making promises i have kept and i will keep them for the american people. [ cheers and applause ] >> reporter: president obama meantime, continuing down the path you can't trust governor romney. that he is misleading american people, imploring to give him another four years to get the economy on track. now is not the time to be changing horses. >> after four years of president you know me. you may not a
borger, david gergen and chief national correspondent, john king. john, the campaigns say they are ready for late night waiting for ohio returns. what do the latest polls tell us? >> if you look at our new poll today, it tells you the campaigns are right. we've got essentially a dead heat. the president has a 50% to 47% for governor romney lead among likely voters. that's within the margin of error. if you look deep into the poll, they're tied among independents. the president is doing very well in cleveland and columbus, where he has to do well. governor romney's doing pretty well down here in the southwest corner of the state where i am and in the rural areas. where he needs to do well. both candidates are doing well where they need to do well. now they're just trying to turn up the energy and turn up the intensity which is why they're both here in the state today. they will both be back in the state today. if you look deep into our poll, you have a classic dead heat in the classic swing state. >> david, you were saying a couple days ago you thought the president was an odds-on favorit
political weekend before the election on tuesday, we talk with john dickerson the political director of cbs news. >>hio is still the granddaddy of them all. governor romney's going there the most of all the battleground state, the same with the president. right now you would have to say that the president has the better electoral map, the polls in more battleground states are favouring him. but romney is doing better in north carolina and florida, and on the early vote he's doing well in those states, doing well in colorado. but the president is doing well in iowa an nevada with the early vote which tells us a little bit how this thing is starting to break. >> we close this evening with this qstio what is the impact of the digital revolution on books, writers and publishing. joining me ken auletta, tim o reilly, jonathan safran foer an jane frieman. >> i like the idea of ebooks how they can democratize books. ma what i am afraid of is on platforms that have distracks an are inherently fast makes it harder to make books books. >> it is so important to have historical perspective. you know wh
's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the president and mr. romney had to say, but, you know, let's talk about the political capital here. who is going to get more political capital out of this with just four days to the election, ali? >> well, hands down president obama because he had the most to lose out of this thing. the issue was if the unemployment rate went up substantially, or more importantly if the 171,000 jobs weren't created. the expectation was for 125,000 jobs. as long as he cleared that, he was going to be okay. barack obama gets more out of it. as you can see, he's not emphasizing the unemployment rate when he's speaking. mitt romney is doing that math that doesn't work thing again. barack obama said that the unemployment was going to be this and now it is this and as a result 9 million people are out of work. that's just not math that works. i don't think either of them are convincing anybody right now. this could have hurt barack obama. it is not going to hurt him. i don't kno
event of the day in a county that senator john mccain won in 2008 with 60% of the vote. kristen welker is traveling with the president. she joins us now. as i mentioned, lima, 60% of that vote went to john mccain. is the president tailoring his message different than what we heard today, kristen? >> reporter: good afternoon, tamron. i think we will hear a similar message in lima we heard during the president's first two stops today. he's talking about the fact he had improvements and the latest unemployment report to make that argument, but he's really focusing on the auto bailout, the auto industry specifically slamming mitt romney for his recent claims that jeep is shipping jobs to china. the president said the companies themselves have told governor romney to knock it off. it's worth noting that papers in this area have come out and said that those claims are false. the romney campaign continues to stand by their ad that says the auto bailout will lead it to shipping jobs overseas. that's the big focus today. why? it's an issue that resonates with the voters here's in ohio. one out

at the jobs picture with two economists with ties to the presidential candidates: john taylor of stanford university and the hoover institution. he advises the romney campaign on economic issues. and austan goolsbee of the university of chicago's booth school of business. he served as president obama's chairman of the council of economic advisers until last year. to the extent mob set aside the rhetoric of the campaign if you can for a moment, tell us about the bigger picture. what strikes you most, what worries you most about the jobs picture now and in the coming years? >> well, i would say any reputable economist says every month don't just take any one month numbers, try to take a step back and look at the trend that's far more accurate in this. i think if you look at the trend the overall job creation has been relatively solid for the last three months. the overall growth rate of the economy is the most worrisome thing that it's been modest, you know, moderate growth. and that that is about the fastest growth rate of all the advanced countries of the world. i think the underlying fea

, directing legend says it was an ad lib, which was obvious at the time. let's listen. >> i have to give john vioght a pat on the back. i was sitting with him and a couple other people talking about the economy. he said why doesn't anybody in hollywood ever speak up. i said he's right, we are kind of chicken. the chair idea, that came out of the air. i was sitting there and the guy behind the stage said here, you want to sit down? i said no, but take it out and set it next to the podium. he said you want to sit down? i said no, put it there. i said that's stupid, why did i do that. afterwards, people came out and said it was fun. >> there you have it. on a more serious note, he said he's not happy with how obama handled the attack in mbenga sa. >>> four days to go before the election, biden read the top ten good things about voting early. here are a few highlights. >> single, looking to mingle. find that special someone in the early voting. if you vote early, you don't have to pay taxes. i'm sorry. i'm told that's not accurate. don't you want this election over with already? >> in four days,

cities. john muller is in new york, where the storm surge hit so hard. john, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, amy. earlier this week, i would be underwater. much of lower manhattan was. it's dry. the storm has passed. it's easy to say it's behind us. it's not. make no mistake. it's just a matter of time before another storm hits. this is one of the problems, an aging infrastructure. this is the seawall. from a bygone era. experts say there's a way to prevent this. they say it's time to spend billions to save billions. experts now wonder if the massive storm surge that flooded lower manhattan and washed away parts of the jersey shore, could have been solved by sea barriers. some say that staten island began as a natural barrier island, but it became an urban landscape, taking away this natural shield. now, engineers are proposing massive shields like these walls. flood protections that were once considered unnecessary, are now being reconsidered after sandy's 14-foot surge. >> anybody who says there's not a dramatic change in weather patterns, i think is denying reality. >> repo
polls. what it shows is that john mccain is leading in the states he's got to lead in like ohio and florida. we're going to pick up pennsylvania. we think we've got a real good shot in virginia, new hampshire, new mexico, nevada. that's the pathway to victory for john mccain. >> here's something interesting as we know now. the president won all those states that mitt romney mentioned, tony. do you think the prediction is going to be a bit better this time around? >> it's not for -- i hope romney isn't making those kind of predictions today. predictions shouldn't be his business. it should be racing as fast as he can across the finish line. but look, campaigns are tough. this one is still really tight. a lot of these races are still really tight. and there are things that none of us know about. polls don't know what turnout is going to be on election day. that's always been traditionally incredibly difficult to predict. and that makes big differences. so we'll see. >> i want to talk about something that we are surprisingly talking about, karen. paul ryan, joe biden both of them h
